No one seems to even care his bike was stolen

This is a tragic reminder of how even locked up bikes can be stolen. A man whose only transportation is his bike is interviewed by a national news source.

Player,

At least you provide the source of your news. It is at least as credible as some of the other stories/facts posted here.

Sounds like the bike owner is a bit slower than the rest of us so making fun of him for the sake
of a story is just wrong.

Mine and a friends was stolen in the french quarter just over a week ago then found half a mile way via craigslist posting. Some kind people in New Orleans realized that the bikes were just laying on the ground locked to each other and secured it with thier lock to a post, then contacted me. Some people do care, infact I was surprised at how many people responded to the posting I really thought I was going to get no response off it.
